    Hi!

    Picked up my new cam on Friday :D , a Pentax Optio 450 4MP compact and rushed home in excitement, hoping to take some excellent pics! However it started raining but then someone up there must have been listening….

    Later the skies cleared up and Mars rises …

    So I have to get my scope out and take some pics of it…

    The following day I goto a local lake to get some shots of birds..

    [​IMG]

    Wow! Black Swans

    [​IMG]

    The geese are very willing..

    I’m really pleased with this camera, hopefully I’ll be taking more and better shots with it! :D :D

    it was! The dangers of pursuing your hobbie indeed! Kind of reminds me of that “tip” F8 and be there…except its more like F8 and AARRGGGHHH RUN!!! It was well moody! Mind you I learnt something new from that shot…that geese have tongues! Oh and don’t ask your fiancĂ©e to throw bread over you to attract geese to you :lol:

    Absolutely everything! My old cameras are a cheap 1.3MP and my trusty Olympus OM-1. The differences between the OM-1 and the 450, apart from the format and the benefits of digital, is having automatic functions like AF and AE, although the 450 has a 100% manual mode too, usually its really difficult to do any impromptu photo shoots because of the time it takes me to adjust for a correct exposure.

    The thing I appreciate most is AF I’ve ruined so many shots from focus being out! And when I had it hooked upto my scope, usually focusing is a bit touch and go but the AF just locked onto Mars with little apparent problem The other thing is the clarity and sharpness of some of the shots, for example the first goose head, I was really impressed with how much detail was there. :D

Every time anyone else on this forum is buying a new camera its moving towards actually being NEW my new camera's are getting older and older. LOL see my post about CAS. LOL I'll stack my Agfa-Ansco No.1 up against any old digital. Heh heh. :camera:
